Car not getting enough gas.
The most likely cause of this problem would be a weak fuel pump or a clogged fuel filter. I would enlist the help of a YourMechanic technician to check your fuel pressure first. If the fuel pressure is low and the pump seems to come on, change the fuel filter. If changing the fuel filter makes no difference to the fuel pressure, the fuel pump is likely weak. Clogged fuel injectors or electrical issues within the fuel system may also cause the engine not to receive enough fuel. Have the technician inspect the injectors as well for any issues.
